My experience at Doane has been very delightful! I've met new people, great staff ,and professors. I like how everything on campus is nearby and convenient. I like how there is smaller classes and people from all over come to this university. The food is delicious and everyone is friendly.

Doane University is an amazing school that allows students to connect with their professors. It is so easy to meet up with professors ahead of time if one cannot attend class to stay on top of class material. Everyone is so helpful! It is a friendly environment. If I ever have a question about something, people are always willing to help me with what I need. There are also many academic resources available.
The campus is beautiful first off. The professors are all great and love to work one-on-one with students who ask for help. The teachers want you to succeed, not just pass the class to help them look good. Everyone who works there is super friendly, along with your classmates. They are very helpful about getting you help whether it is counseling, tutoring, financial aid, etc. The housing could be updated, they need to be cleaned more and need more washer and dryers. Some of the kitchens do not have all the needed appliances that students cannot bring from home and I believe that if you tell students they cannot bring something then it should be provided in the common areas. Overall I love this campus and the education is wonderful.
